Registering for CIS Scheme

How the Construction Industry Scheme affects your payroll

How the Construction Industry Scheme affects your payroll

The Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) lays out the rules for how contractors in the construction industry should administer payments to subcontractors for construction work. The scheme usually only applies to contractors and subcontractors, however some non-construction related businesses that spend more than an average of £1 million every year over a 3 year period on construction operations may also fall under the scheme.

Businesses affected may include partnerships, limited liability partnerships, large and small companies, and self-employed people working as sole traders. The CIS Scheme covers work that is done to a permanent building or temporary structure and includes civil engineering work or installations. Work on these projects could consist of alterations and extensions, repairs and refurbishment, demolition, decorating, dismantling or assembling, site preparation and general construction.

Detailed information on the CIS Scheme can be found on the HM Revenue and Customs website which includes a downloadable guide for contractors and subcontractors. Businesses can sign up for the CIS Scheme online by selecting this link.
